Triaxes StereoTracer converts images to glasses-free 3D formats for 3D lenticular printing or holographic displays.
StereoTracer allows you to get a multi-angle series of frames from a single 2D photo, from 2D+Depth, or from a stereo pair of photos. The program automatically calculates a depth map.
A series of frames from StereoTracer can be printed as a lenticular 3D picture in 3DMasterKit, or saved as separate files (jpg, tif, psd), or video (mp4, gif, avi) . StereoTracer is able to generate 45-view images for viewing on Looking Glass 3D display, and 2D+Depth images for Philips/Dimenco AS3D displays.
The depth-map (disparity image or Z-image) is an image which contains information about the depth of the picture and serves to convert a two-dimensional image into a three-dimensional one. In the depth-map the gray color gradation shows each pixel’s distance from the viewer. The lighter areas in the depth-map correspond to the areas nearer to the viewer, the darker ones correspond to the more distant areas. A depth-map can be created out of one 2D image manually in any graphic editor or from a stereo pair automatically in StereoTracer.

StereoTracer supports the MPO file format used by the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D, Panasonic and some other cameras.
The program automatically converts stereo MPO files into multi-view stereo sequences for lenticular 3D photo printing.
The Program Wizard as well as the intuitive interface help users run the program features step-by-step and get professional results effortlessly. The detailed User Guide describes all the software options.
This video shows how to make 3D photos with an Android smartphone, Google Camera app, StereoTracer and 3DMasterKit.
